See your story differently. The Studio is for students who want to further ponder the Booth questions or blow up their own answers. Say the Thing has organized a series of six weekly meetings to put your stories in conversation with others: both peers and great thinkers alike. So you’ll do the Booth then read and discuss some Malcolm X. Then do the Booth again (same prompt) and listen to and discuss a little Ocean Vuong. And do the Booth again...you get picture, so at the end of the series your stories are well-polished multifaceted gems.
What do you get by joining the Studio? Ultimately, students will gain perspective, make friends, cultivate a stronger sense of their own voice and values (think about how that will help your next round of job or grad school interviews…), and earn the opportunity to be published through Short Edition and the inaugural Say the Thing magazine (a publication on your resume!)
(Here's what we mean by a publication on your resume.)
